American Eagle Considers Addition of Tyler-Austin Flight

It's been the number one request of travelers at Tyler's airport -- a flight to Austin. It's been years since fliers could go straight from Tyler to the capital, but American Eagle has said it will consider establishing that service.

This comes as Tyler and Smith County leaders are lobbying American Eagle for expansion. Currently, Eagle is the only carrier from Pounds Regional Airport, with several flights to DFW International every day.
